New polls from Emerson College Polling have revealed that Republican incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue have now taken the edge in the Georgia runoff races which are voted on next month.
As of now, both Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are ahead of opponents Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, 51 percent to 48 percent.
According to the poll analysis, “Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling, concludes that ‘the data revealed there is little crossover support, which suggests one party should win both seats.’”
Also, early voting intentions are split, while voting day intentions are all GOP. Said the analysis, “Those planning on voting early are split, with Perdue and Ossoff each receiving 49%. In the other contested election, Warnock is at 50% with Loeffler at 49%. Sixty-one percent (61%) of those who have already voted break for Ossoff and Warnock, with 39% supporting the Republican candidates. Election day voters are breaking for the Republicans, with 68% support for Perdue and 70% for Loeffler.”
Last week, Republican Indiana Sen. Todd Young, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, was upbeat about keeping up with Democrats in absentee voting, typically something the party lags on. “The initial signs are very positive,” said Young of the races of Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
This is very good news.
If Joe Biden becomes president, the only hope we have of preventing a radical progressive agenda from moving forward in our country is to ensure that the Republican party can maintain control of the Senate.
If we fail to hold the Senate, we’re in big trouble.
